At first, I had this image... Kind of erotic dream.
I had dreamed that I put my hand in the sex of a woman.
I had the idea to multiply this erotic view...
And as in the final engraving it is going to be central, but very dark.
I tried to go out of the image...
Off the immediate sexual image...
If we do not see it, that will look something rather commonplace maybe...
I do not know how to say...
To have multiplied them like this in four, to have stacked these views on a plan in cross, as when we stand out on a map, a place...
And there is another obnubilante images which was there, which was ceaselessly present:
It was this we call Monas Hieroglyphica...
This cross which symbolizes four elements.
Unisex in cross, in the middle of which will going to become…
Finally of what is already here: a skull with two snakes that cross…
Two snakes, a skull, two snakes which end in bone...
Sometimes I wonder why I make things like that, it is strange…
The problem is I do not still understand what I make …
Because I do not control it…
I let me snatch by something or more exactly, a kind of “let go”…
I always have the feeling that it is not me who create it: I execute it, but it’s not me who create it…
I feel to be very close to the Art Brut creation.
As a shape of necessity, which obliges me to create things which at first seem to me
